My dad and I are planning a father-son trip to get the New York stadiums out of the way before the teams no longer play there. How can I call myself a baseball geek if I don't ever see a game at the "House that Ruth Built?"
And, we are splurging.
We head out on May 31st for a June 1st afternoon game at Shea, with the Mets playing my beloved Dodgers. Tickets will be in the Loge, 1 level up above home plate.
Then, on June 2nd, we're taking a train to Philadelphia to watch the Phils take on the Reds. I have never been to Philly, so I'm really looking forward to this. Hopefully, we get there early enough so that I can see Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, etc. We're behind home plate on the lower level again.
Then, the finale' is in the Final Championship Seats level (behind home plate) to watch the Yanks take on the Jays on the night of the 3rd.
Any bgeeks listeners want to meet up? Any Phils, Yanks, and/or Met fans know of some good sports bars around the stadiums to down a few before the games?
